Rebuilding from the October wildfires? Are you sure you are building the very best possible house? Hundreds of fire survivor families are now facing important decisions -- and opportunities -- as they meet with architects and contractors about replacement homes. On Wednesday 21 February at 7 p.m., KZYX Mendocino Works welcomed Adam Goldberg of the Solar Living Institute for a conversation about resilient, sustainable and innovative rebuilding. We explored strategies for building homes that are far more resilient and fire-retardant, while taking advantage of a huge range of sustainability options that can make a home far more energy efficient -- even energy neutral -- at prices comparable to conventional construction.
